Kershaw 102 Game Score rides high

When it comes to game score, breaking 100 is the platinum barrier and Clayton Kershaw broke the barrier with his no-hitter against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium. That is not surprising. What is surprising is that Ted Lilly has the second-best game score against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium. Ted Lilly! This list has all …

Mike Kekich rears his strange head

Sandy Koufax has the best game score against the NYM at Dodger Stadium, courtesy of his no-hitter in 1962. It was far from a perfect game since Sandy walked five. It was also against one of the worst teams in baseball history, the newly formed NYM in 1962. The game that catches my eye though, …

Alex Wood almost cracks game score leaderboard

During the broadcast tonight, Joe Davis and Orel starting talking about game scores.  Orel was wondering if the current game score by Alex was close to the brilliant game that Clayton pitched. Joe correctly said no because Wood only had five strikeouts. At the time Wood had a game score over 80 which is excellent …

Don Sutton sits on top but this will be about Doug Rau

Don Sutton has the highest game score against the Washington National franchise at Dodger Stadium. It was a crazy game as Little D went eleven innings and they lost 3 – 5 even though he only gave up one earned run.  The Expos scored three runs in the top of the 14th to win the …

Kershaw re-writes the leaderboards

Part of the fun for me in posting the leaderboards before each series is to see if someone can crack them. Several weeks ago Alex Wood did just that, and last night Clayton Kershaw decided he would be mocked no more for not having a double-digit strikeout game against the Brewers on the road. Here are …

Chan Ho Park takes the K leaderboard against Brewers

As expected Chan Ho Park sits on top of the strikeout leaderboard against the Brewers as visitors with his brilliant 14 strikeout performance on August 29, 2000. What wasn’t expected was Luke Prokopec. Have to be honest I never expected to see Luke on any of these leaderboards, but I guess if John Purdin can …

Hideo Nomo once again on top of a game score leaderboard against an opponent.

Hideo Nomo finds himself on top once again with his two hitter on May 24th, 2003. Only three Dodgers have managed a game score above 80 against the Brewers on the road. That is kind of light.  Chan Ho Park will probably be sitting on top the strikeout leaderboard against the Brewers on the road. …

Kershaw/Koufax share the K top

Kershaw and Koufax both struck out 14 Cubs at Dodger Stadium to share the top spot on the strikeout leaderboard. Pitchers on this list which includes every double digit strikeout game against the games that didn’t crack to top game score list (80 is the cut off point) are Kevin Gross, Burt Hooten,  and Ramon …

Koufax perfect game rides on top

The highest game score by a LAD pitcher against the Cubs at Dodger Stadium is, of course, the perfect game by Sandy Koufax. I like this list because it has some names on it that had been missing in my other game score leaderboards.  Like Hiroki Kuroda, Bill Singer, Tim Belcher, Ricky Nolasco, Rick Honeycut, …

Kershaw updates LAD/Cardinal Dodger Stadium leaderboads

Last night Clayton Kershaw twirled a gem, posting a game score of 87 with ten strikeouts. Yesterday I posted the LAD/Cardinal Game Score  and Double Digit strikeout leaderboards of games pitched at Dodger Stadium. With that game last night, Kershaw wedged himself into those leaderboards so I have to update them.  Which is why I …
